Should a person make an effort to receive an aliya by Krias HaTorah? (By buying it or asking the gabbai for one.) What is the maaila and how frequently is nice?June 20, 2012 2:41 pm at 2:41 pm #880513
After your aliya, the gabbai asks you for a list of names to read out. What is the purpose of him saying those names, and which people should a person mention to the gabbai (wife, all children, friends)?
And he also asks for a donation amount. How much is typical (Shabbos or weekday)? And why do some people simply say “matana” instead of an actual amount, and what does giving a matana mean?June 20, 2012 2:43 pm at 2:43 pm #880514Shticky GuyParticipant

Unless you have a yahrzeit, I believe ettiquette is to wait until you are offered an aliyah.June 21, 2012 1:03 am at 1:03 am #880516

Why do many shuls give glila to a child rather than to an adult?June 21, 2012 2:20 pm at 2:20 pm #880518artchillParticipant
Should you make an effort? It’s supposed to be a kibbud. Begging doesn’t seem very honorable! Every shul has protocols, if you have a question feel free to speak with the gabbai.
How often? This depends on size of shul
Why asks for names? The hope is you will give a donation, offering you the extended MiShebeirach is an added value to your aliyah, as all those names receive the blessings recited in the MiShebeirach.
Typical pledge? Depends on person $18 is usual minimum.
Why say matanah? Some people don’t feel like naming a dollar amount on Shabbos. Some are embarrassed to say $18 especially when they used to give $180. Some want to give $1,000 but don’t want everyone lining up on his door that night.
Glilah? Every shul has their own protocol ask your local gabbai.June 21, 2012 3:42 pm at 3:42 pm #880519TheGoqParticipant
If your the type who doesnt want to get an aliyah just go to shul without a tallis you wont have to worry about it, but be prepared to do gelilah.June 21, 2012 11:32 pm at 11:32 pm #880520CsarMember

My guess would be for the same reason that we allow them to lead the davening up to a point: chinuch. It also gives them an opportunity to feel involved with and be a part of the davening.
